Trade Secrets

New York Trade Secrets Attorney

The Uniform Trade Secrets Act generally defines a trade secret as any specialized knowledge or information that gives a business an advantage over a competitor. A trade secret could be almost anything that gives you a competitive advantage. It could be something as simple as a list of customers or as unique as a secret formula for soda. It could be a specific business process or way of doing things. Trade secrets can be extremely valuable and should be protected.
